Yeah I'm not really into them either. This one just shares a common interest. It's kind of neat to see all of the different add on's and modules all based on HPL's stories and the stories of his friends, those who inspired him, etc. Now the board game Arkham Horror is fun. I own the new version but haven't played it yet. There are also expansion packs to this as well such as The Dunwich Horror, The King In Yellow, etc. I belong to a couple of Yahoo and Google discussion groups dedicated to HPL and these games as well.
Thanks for amplifying your thoughts. Your insights are helpful.
I pust published a short story on Amazon and Smashwords, as well as B&N. It's free on Smashwords. The title is: His First Kill: A Short Story. It's a quick read and you might enjoy it.
Hi Steve. Lovecraft has been one of my favorite authors for a long time. I started reading him in my early teens and it progressed from there. I have some of the Arkham House editions and have read some of the works by other authors. I've been into the RPG Call Of Cthulhu since the early 80's and belong to several groups outside of this one that deals with this. Ironically I've only played the game 3 times and that includes 2 times by email. I attended my first convention last year (I'm 47 and a geek) but it was a comicon and had very little to do with the game (did see some cool comix about HPL.) Thinking about attending the gaming con in Indy. Thanks again for accepting my request.
Thanks for your review. I thought it was on target.
Your description of the lead character as whiny - I would have said weak or self-centered or pampered - is probably because that is the way I wanted him early on in the novel. I wanted events to change him, make him see the world differently, and finally act out of concern for others. Although he fails in the end, he goes down fighting.
My other two books are quite different. "The Ghost Of A Flea" also has a weak character to begin with, who is forced to change because of circumstances. He has a strong woman to help him. This book is a romantic thriller and has gotten good reviews and I think you will like it. No explicit sex. Less graphic violence.
The Watcher is a horror novel about the occult. The characters in this one are not weak and I think you can cheer for them throughout.
Thanks for your review. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the other two novels.
I'm troubled that you had trouble downloading a decent copy of Quarantine. I'm unaware of a formatting problem. Is this problem specific to Quarantine or have you had similar problems with other books?
I'd love to hear your comments on the book when you're through.
Thanks for your efforts.
Hi, and welcome to the Chiller group. Our group's been around for a while so there are a ton of threads. Hop on over to our introduction post and tell the group hi and talk about some of your favorite horror authors. Feel free to start your own discussion posts and browse our growing group shelf. Also, we're looking to start a Horror movie discussion, and that is open for nominations right now.
Any questions at all just ask, same for suggestions or ideas.
Dear Steve, Great. Nice to meet you. Have you ever read any L. Ron Hubbard books! Check out my shelf. I have 5 new ones from Hubbard. Classics, 30s and 40s style stories, that are just pure good clean fun and action! You might want to ad them to your shelf!
